R. Kelly Set To Tour In Africa, Dissed By Trey Songz

Earlier this week, Trey Songz released a spin-off to Jay Z's D.O.A. entitled Death of Kellz. The remix was actually a diss track in which the crooner unleashed a barrage of insults directed at R&B hitmaker, R. Kelly.

When asked about the reason behind his actions, Trey responded, "I just want the king back." Seems like the producer turned singer will get his wish because Kellz is indeed coming back... to his roots.

R. Kelly is set to embark on a multi-city tour of Africa this month that spans South Africa, Nigeria, and London. The songwriter's decision to tour the African continent was prompted by his participation in the ARISE African Fashion Awards which takes place in Johannesburg, South Africa on June 20.

According to, this will be Kellz's first trip to Africa as a world-renowned performer and as a descendent of the Motherland. The Pied Piper also speaks about his anticipation surrounding his dream-turned-reality on both a personal and professional level.

"I'm very excited about my first visit to Africa, I've dreamed about this for a long time and it's finally here," Kellz told "It will be one of the highlights of not only my career but my life. I can't wait to perform in front of my fans in Africa - who have been some of the best in the world."

Africa tour dates:

Saturday, June 27th at the Superbowl in Sun City
Monday, June 29th at the Grand West Casino in Cape Town
Friday, July 3rd at the THISDAY Dome in Abuja, Nigeria
Saturday, July 4th and Sunday, July 5th in Lagos, Nigeria
Wednesday, July 8th at Wembley Arena in London, UK

R. Kelly is set to drop his new album, Untitled in September 2009.
